Not sure specifically what you mean by how far my builder has progressed? I had previously built all the packages for raspbian/armhf and they are up at dropbox for use in sources.list. It has been a few months since I've done a rebuild of those packages but they work just fine with a 1004 core. I have been puttering away the whole time.
I have a full MD running on 512MB RPi, photo-screensaver and UI1 with USB-UIRT. Full MD with screensaver crashes on 256mb rpi. The only piece of the puzzle that is missing is an omxplayer (a la mplayer_player) to handle media playback on the pi.
MD creation is essentially worked out, I have copious notes and have been working on updating scripts for proper MD functionality with as little alterations to current scripts as possible. I have been waiting for 1004 release and lifting of feature freeze so I can request svn access and update everything I have here into svn.
Talking with golgo we decided that a UI1 based MD on rpi is the way to go until qorbiter matures more.
So... if there is anything that people could/should try to work on it is an omxplayer for pi mds. With that we would have essentially complete MD functionality on the rpi.
I'm a happy user of LinuxMCE and last week I was trying to get MD on my 512MB Raspberry Pi. I've followed procedure "Proting Raspbian" on wiki page. At the moment I'm able to login to my "raspberry moon" (Pi is booting from the network and I'm getting login screen). So my question is :what I need to do, to have orbiter running on my Pi to be able i.eg listening a music. What do I miss during the install process or what extra steps needs to be done to have full MD on Raspberry Pi? I'm running 1004 Core
Thanks in advance for your help ;-)
